PROCESS SERVING RULES

Find a process server in your area.

The "Federal Rules of Civil Procedure" are where the rules & regulations of process serving can be found.

Remember to check with your state's rules as well (if any) & to always double-check information in case it is incomplete or needs to be updated. These tips are not intended to be legal advice but merely informational suggestions.

Other Helpful Tips:

Bring a watch or a clock, so you can note the time of service. Make sure to ask for the name of the person you serve (if unacquainted). Put the documents to be served in a sealed envelope. Type the party's name on the outside of the envelope. Bring tape with you in case you need to "post" the envelope on a door. Be sure to have the server fill out a "Proof of Service" of "Affidavit of Service." Finally, be safe!
